Sewing

This diaper bag is made from “Polly goes to Paris” fabric squares.  It has a matching wipe/diaper clutch inside, I didn’t get a good pic of the clutch.  It went to a sweet couple who have been blessed to adopt a new baby girl.

These are some cute “girls” made from The Black Apple doll pattern available on Martha Stewart http://www.marthastewart.com/article/black-apple-doll  I made a few modifications to the pattern, I enlarged it 200% for a little bigger doll (made the arms much easier to sew and stuff), I added ponytails and embroidered the faces instead of painting them on.

The two on the right “Pink-Belle” and “Blue-Belle” are Naomi’s, the blue doll on the left is “Mandy” she belongs to Eliza and the green doll is “Abigail”, she belongs to Eva.

This is a great bib pattern from Chickpea Studio, free pattern to download-http://chickpeastudio.typepad.com/chickpea_sewing_studio/2008/01/chickpea-infant.html

I used my snap press instead of button/buttonholes for more adjustability, each bib has 2 layers of cotton knit and a top decorative fabric of cotton woven print, cotton knit print or fine corduroy print.

I will get a pic of our sweet Mr. Drooley modeling one of them when he wakes up.

  1. So, I think I already told you this- but I LOVE the diaper bag I got and I really want a sock monkey now. haha. And now I’m pretty sure I need some of those bibs!! If you have the time, I would seriously pay you for them. I love them and I’m not crafty at all. I have no idea how to sew.
